    Malwarebytes and Spybot are both ones you can trust.

    Long shot, byt try pressing CTRL-ALT-DELETE, going to Task Manager, then Processes, and see if anything suspicious is listed. Though some malware doesn't appear there to avoid this.

    As I said, another program you could try is Spywareblaster.

    SuperAntiSpyware is pretty much Adware. The realtime protection engine has been broken for several years for a paid internet security suite.

    Spybot is too old for these days.    The detection rate is pretty low and it is still way behind in terms of its interface.  The whole term of spyware is somewhat redundant nowadays and is all classed as malware.

    Malwarebytes is good.

    Eset is good.

    If you want a good free AV, try Avast.

    Thanks, folks.

    The computer has been back from the shop for I guess three weeks and seems to have no problems except this. It doesn't seem to harm anything, just auto restarts for Chess.com. The other thing is no one else seems to have this problem, so I just put it down to bad karma.

    Thanks adam and conqistador, will check it out.

    I must say I love that title (for some reason it reminds me of Summer of 42).
